3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and type.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 USFF have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the OptiPlex 9020 USFF which has two DisplayPorts.
+4 More reasons for
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF the depths range from 31mm to 590mm. The DELL OptiPlex 9020 USFF is one of the shallower medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 USFF (only 240 millimeters) amongst desktop computers of this age.
The weights of computers of this age and spec range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg. The OptiPlex 9020 USFF is fairly light (only 3.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF.
At only 65 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 USFF is quite narrow compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF. The average width of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF is 180mm.
9 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 2 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 USFF has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that have been available for more than a year. The average processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
If this DELL PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3106865_price] (2.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is Hybrid-HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
The average hard drive speed of comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF is 7,100 RPM, and the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF, the hard drive speed of the OptiPlex 9020 USFF of only 5,400 revolutions per minute is one of the slowest.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 USFF is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. The DELL OptiPlex 9020 USFF has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
+6 More reasons against
Only Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 USFF has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs of a comparable age and spec to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The OptiPlex 9020 USFF is a one 3.5" bay PC.
Very Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
The smallest hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 USFF is 500GB and the biggest is 2TB. At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 USFF has a quite small hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020 USFF.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The OptiPlex 9020 USFF is a one 5.25" bay personal computer.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 USFF has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3 gigahertz) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. Comparable spec PCs that were released more than a year ago have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 USFF
Released Over a Year Ago
This computer was released over a year ago.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 USFF has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 USFF.
If you want a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Aspire XC-705[pl_3121374_price] (10GB), or the Aspire TC-705[pl_3095333_price] (12GB) both from Acer.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 USFF has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 USFF.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the HP 800 G2[plb_3797297_price] (1TB).
